Error -6177 means that the file is not accessible at the location QuickBooks is trying to open it.

The reasons for this may be:
1. The network is offline. Make sure that the directory is available or that you're still connected to the network.
2. The file was deleted by someone else available on the network.
3. If you have recently updated Quickbooks from an earlier version, then the cause may be a bug with the product itself. It has been reported by other users that they experience Error 6177 everytime they try to open a previously existing file.

Upgrading from Quickbooks Pro 2003 to Quickbooks 2009


I would not open up the company file in 2009. Open your 2003 Quickbooks, make a backup and then restore the back up in 2009. If you do run into problems you might want to upgrade into 2006 and then to 2009. (you will need to find someone who can do this for you if you don't have a 2006 version. I can help you with that if you need it

Converting QB Pro 2008 to QB Online


You can tell your data file size by having the program open and using Control+1 on the keyboard.

Depending on the complexity of the books, going to the On line version may not be your best choice as it has limited capabilities compared to the desktop versions.
